We visited La Cabana in Aruba and attended the Blue Green Time Share presentation. They are trying to convert the owners of La Cabana to their points system. My first thought was the owner gives them a time share with value and they give you points. You give away something physical and get something back that is virtual. So I asked about the points. Am I guaranteed a room at a location where I want to stay? The answer: upon availability. If I book their maximum 11 months out at a resort where I want to stay for a specific week will I get a timeshare. The answer: upon availability.
During the presentation they pulled out 5 - 6 books of their locations and places where I could stay. When I asked if I could have a copy the answer was no. The presentation was based on literature that they have and will not give you, a paper and pencil, they use to write down what you say, and then a price, I was offered 18K points for around $25K. which they will finance at 16.9% interest rate.
When I got back to the states I searched and found this site and I was not suprised to find out that many people are not happy with their points plan. What a plan they have, when you give away your timeshare for their points. No investment on their part. Free timeshare for them and points that seem hard to use for you. As far as I can tell they have no investment in La Cabana. They took over the management of the property when the last company went backrupt. Now they list the property as a place you can use your points. I am not sure how many rooms they have their (since they will not give you any information). My feeling is not many. Their plan is to convert the owners to their points system.
